Ford f150 problem(s)

OK, my dad has a 2000(I think) f150 flare side 5 speed. I'll start from the beginning. It has 190000 miles on it. A while ago there was a hole in his exhaust somewhere and we took it to our mechanic to fix it. After that we noticed a jerking when you put stress on the engine.. going up a hill or accelerating sometimes. Ii don't think it did it before the exhaust fix, but I'm not sure on it. Just the other day his fuel pump died, and we thought that was the jerking problem. So after $500 to fix the pump and his heat it is still jerking. Also it felt like it Wwas going to stall at the gas station today when I started it. We did a full tune up, plugs, wires, filters, everything lol. The codes are for all of his O2 sensors.. but the mechanic said only one is probably bad. So is an o2 sensor the problem here? And is there a way to narrow it down to the one sensor?

Code should identify which 02. Clean the throttle body, Fords are not immune to this issue.

My mustang would jerk so bad the passenger seat would flop back and forth. O2 sensors was what it was, of course I did everything else before changing those.

I've seen o2 sensors go bad from hooking the ground cable onto them when welding exhausts. Not to say that's what happened but its a thought

That is probably what happened considering we never moticed it before the exhaust. It's pretty noticeable so I'm sure it started then

If they're the original ones, I'd just replace them, they were wore out anyway

Ok got the codes. There is a crankshaft position sensor code, bank 1 sensor 1 and 2 o2 sensor codes, and the bank 2 o2s. So between the cranlshaft and o2 codes that seems like our problem

yep, just replace them, they are "cheap" enough to do all. Especially with the miles.

Maybe Ford also has an exhaust fuse like our Cobalts. You have too many different OČ codes for it to be coincidence that they would all go bad at the same time. Maybe this fuse also powers your crank position sensor. Worth checking out!
